in thread biased random number picking

the slice is expensive and not really required:
my $choice = int(rand($#options + 1)); say 'Choice #', $_, ' is ', $options[$choice]; $options[$choice] = $options[-1]; pop @options;

[Eily]: must be km farenheit or something :P
[Eily]: wow, don't say that in Nancy LanX :P
[erix]: maybe you used the car routes, I used the walking routes
[Eily]: there's a rivalry between the two cities, so defining one in terms of the other might not be well received
[Eily]: erix well I did click on the walking icon
LanX giggles!
[LanX]: Eily I'm duing this constantly with people from rival cities ...MUCHO fun!
[Eily]: The best example of that is the TGV, they couldn't decide who would get it so it's in the middle of nowhere halfway between the two
[LanX]: Eily: that rings a bell
[erix]: interesting difference, I suppose they use different data/routes (and shorter seems better, no?)
